Tottenham 0-0 Everton: Premier League – LIVE!

Welcome to the Evening Standard’s LIVE coverage of Tottenham vs Everton.

Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti were both appointed mid-season at Tottenham and Everton respectively, and today marks the start of their first full season in charge.

Today’s match marks the beginning of a hectic schedule for Spurs, who play nine matches in 22 days.

That schedule has only increased Tottenham’s need for further reinforcements, with Mourinho hoping to bring in another striker to add competition – and respite – to star man Harry Kane.

Dan Kilpatrick is at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium today, and he – alongside Matt Davies – will bring you all the action from north London.

33 mins: What a save! 

From Dier’s clearance, Moura finds Son in acres of space. The attacker bursts forward, plays in Dele Alli, whose shot is tipped over by Pickford. 

Kane was very unhappy there that Son opted for Alli instead of him. 

32 mins: Tottenham clear the corner, but soon find themselves defending another after Doherty diverts Digne’s cross behind. 

Eric Dier rises brilliantly to clear once more. 

30 mins: It’s been a thoroughly even first 30 minutes, as Everton bring up there first corner of the game. 

Richarlison cuts in from the left on his right foot, but his effort is blocked behind. 

27 mins: From one end to another! Son sees a curling effort blocked by Coleman, before Everton launch a counter-attack, finished by a scuffed effort from Rodriguez that rolls through to Lloris. 

25 mins: Spurs carve open another opportunity down the right-hand side, but Dele Alli’s cross along the floor is cleared. Spurs have stepped it up in the last five minutes or so. 

24 mins: Close!

That’s the closest Spurs have got to an opener! Son plays in a defence-splitting cross for Harry Kane, who can’t quite reach as he slides in. 

The ball narrowly trickles past the post!

The presence of James is highlighting Tottenham’s own lack of creativity in the final third. In the absence of Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Kane looks the most likely player to unlock Everton but he’s really the player Spurs want on the receiving end of chances.

22 mins: It’s been a tricky opening spell for Doherty, who is playing very, very high up so far. It will be interesting to see how Richarlison can exploit that space down the left. He’s got through once already…

19 mins: It’s been an interesting battle between Son and Coleman, who blocks the South Korean’s cross to hand Spurs the first corner of the game. 

Everton clear with ease, however, and Spurs continue to build from the back. 

16 mins: Huge chance for Everton! 

What on Earth was Davies thinking? He overhits the ball looking for Alderweireld, which falls straight into the path of Richarlison. 

The Brazilian rounds Lloris, but then inexplicably blasts over from just a few yards out. That had to be 1-0.

James has taken no time to find his feet on in the Premier League. All Everton’s attacks are already going through the Colombian, who is playing on the right of their front three. The visitors are having the lion’s share of possession so far, although Spurs look threatening on the break through Son.

13 mins: Everton are in total control of the ball at the moment, with Spurs really struggling to get a touch. 

The away side have looked entirely comfortable in possession but have failed to carve open any sort of opportunity so far. 

10 mins: Everton continue to dominate possession, but Spurs look dangerous on the counter, narrowly missing two opportunities to break clear with poor passes from Kane and Alli. 

8 mins: Everton have somewhat settled down and look comfortable on the ball. Rodriguez plays an exquisite driven ball out to Digne, whose cross is headed out by Alderweireld. 

6 mins: More good play by Spurs, as Kane flicks it over the top for Son to chase. Again, Coleman gets there in the nick of time to clear. 

4 mins: Davies lofts a dangerous ball over the top which Son beats Coleman to down the left. Son looks to break into the box, but Coleman recovers and diverts it off the attacker for a goal kick. 

3 mins: It’s Spurs who have the first shot of the match, as Son cuts in on his right before firing towards Pickford. The England ‘keeper saves comfortably, however. 

2 mins: It’s Tottenham who start with the majority of possession, playing it round comfortably at the back. 

Matt Doherty looks to be in a very advanced position already, as we saw with Aurier last season. 



The referee has blown the whistle and we’re underway at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!

It could scarcely be a more glorious day here, adding to the sense of new-season optimism around north London. For both these clubs, this feels like more than simply a new season but the true start of a new spell under a legendary manager following all the difficulties and disruptions of last season.
